I Ching
by Martin Burke

Fellowship with Men

creative heaven and clinging flame

friendship with men
success
it helps you to cross great water
the superior man advances

heaven and fire-
this is fellowship with men
so the superior man organises all things
and makes distinctions between them

                             *

fellowship at the gate
there will be no blame

fellowship with the clan
humiliation

weapons in the grass
he climbs the high hill
he does not rise up

he does not attack
there is good fortune

first weeping then laughter
great struggle and success

there will be no remorse
